Actor Lee Byung-hun left for the U.S. last Thursday to attend the 27th Sundance Film Festival, as his movie "I Saw the Devil" was chosen as a Spotlight Film this year.
Around 9,000 films are submitted for the category every year, and only 200 are selected to be screened. This year's festival opened last weekend and is on until this Sunday in Park City, Utah.
"I Saw the Devil" has been warmly received at a number of major film festivals around the world, including the Toronto International Film Festival and the San Sebastian International Film Festival. It is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on March 4.
